AbstractAbstract PDF
Delayed posttraumatic spinal epidural hematoma is an extremely rare disease, and it remains a challenge for surgical teams of trauma centers. Magnetic resonance imaging is an essential tool for early diagnosis, and emergent evacuation of the hematoma is the best choice of treatment. We report the case of a 33-year old man with posttraumatic epidural hematoma in the thoracic spine (T10 and T11 levels), who developed an abrupt-onset paraplegia 5 days after the trauma.
